Where2Golf says: 

Golf & Country Club Oudenaarde: Laid out in the grounds of Petegem Castle (a very handsome stately pile), there are now two 18-hole courses at Oudenaarde, the Kasteel (Castle) and the Anker (Anchor). The shorter Kasteel course utilises holes from the former Adbij (A), Anker (B) and Burcht (C) nines, and also includes two new holes. As before, the layout will test every facet of your game - not least your ability to hit the ball straight and true. Mature trees and garden-like bushes line most of the fairways, often quite tightly. OB, water ditches and small lakes also play their part in keeping you straight and honest on a layout that is at times flat, at others gently undulating. Wayward power-hitting is not the key to unlocking a good score on this pleasant parkland layout. If you think there is sanctuary to be found once you reach the putting surfaces, then think again. The generally fast and excellently maintained greens, are sufficiently fast and sloping to test the nerve of even the best of putters. The course contains its fair share of strong holes and others of a "trickier" nature, with an even spread of tight drives, "water-bounded" par-3's and dog-legging longer holes. Don't be surprised to hear chimes from the chateau's bell-tower ringing out at regular intervals (perhaps a pace of play reminder !).

Did you know?

The stately home of Petegem Castle, dating from 1847, incorporates the clubhouse - one of the more impressive 19th holes in Belgium, and probably the only one where the bell tower still rings out its melodious chimes.

The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.
